Corporate and Workplace

Meet our Corporate Fundraising Manager:

I’m Emma Pilling, Corporate Fundraising Manager for the Child Brain Injury Trust. I am extremely proud to work for the charity having first hand experience of life as the parent of a child with an acquired brain injury.

I travel up and down the country working with our amazing network of Corporate Supporters.

We have three regional fundraising groups in London, Birmingham and Manchester and are always happy to welcome new members.

I help our corporate network to deliver a wide variety of fundraising events and am often found attending these events, sharing with guests what we do and why their support makes a difference. I also manage our strategic corporate partnership programme.

If you are interested in supporting the work that we do please email me at and we can discuss how you can join us in making a difference for families affected by ABI.

Charity of the Year (COTY)

A Charity of the Year partnership with the Child Brain Injury Trust can offer huge benefits not only for the charity, but also for the company.

The ultimate aim is to work in partnership with companies to help them achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility goals whilst also helping to provide support for those who have suffered a life changing brain injury.

It’s really easy for your business to get involved with our work. With unique opportunities for staff engagement, team building and developing new skills, Charity of the Year partners work with us not only to raise money for the charity, but to also increase the company’s profile, brand recognition and service/product offering.

Building a relationship with a charity like the Child Brain Injury Trust also helps you to increase engagement with your customers and with your employees. You will also benefit from positive local and national PR opportunities and national exposure via our social media networks.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • We have creative and passionate team to support you and your organisation.
  • We provide a dedicated Fundraising Officer to work with you throughout your relationship with us
  • We can provide informative and motivational presentations to your staff
  • Supplying innovative but simple fundraising tips and ideas. 

Whether you’re a small local business, or part of a multi-country corporation, we want to hear from you!

Strategic Partnerships

CBIT is dedicated to supporting children and families affected by acquired brain injury (ABI). Our team of ABI Coordinators, based across the UK, collaborate closely with NHS teams in 19 Major Trauma Centres, providing essential support to families following childhood brain injuries. This support ranges from practical assistance in meetings with schools or hospitals to emotional support through our counselling services.

Each year, approximately 40,000 children are affected by ABI. While we cannot reach all these families, we strive to create a positive impact for as many as possible through our Early Intervention service, Community Inclusions and Educational service, and our Virtual service, which includes our innovative app, “CBIT in Hand.”

To meet the growing demand, we launched our Strategic Partnership Programme last year. Our goal is to build strong, meaningful relationships with our corporate audience, creating partnerships that truly work. We want to share our successes and help our partners achieve new heights. We are great people doing amazing things together, and we are incredibly proud of the programme we have developed.

Each partnership is as unique as the partner involved because, just like a brain injury, no two partners are the same. We seek dynamic new partners to join us in pursuing innovative and impactful objectives. Our partnership options are diverse, each designed to achieve specific, tangible outcomes and align with shared values.

Our Strategic Partnership packages are thoughtfully crafted, inspired by the different parts of the brain to represent our approach. Each package serves a unique purpose, focusing on areas such as family support, counselling, education, and networking.

We aim to transparently demonstrate the positive impact of each partnership, showcasing meaningful outcomes like family days, counselling, and training programmes. Together, we can achieve so much, and we look forward to sharing and celebrating these achievements with you. Your support will make a profound difference in the lives of families following childhood acquired brain injury, so we invite you to join us on this journey of compassion and impact.

If you want to make a difference for children and families affected by ABI, please get in touch. I’d love to share more about what we do and how you can help. Email me at, and let’s discuss how we can change lives together.
